It was bound to happen eventually, right?

On a rain-drenched German highway, the BMW i8 proved too much to handle for even a skilled test driver.

It's believed that the rain, along with a high rate of speed, led to the crash.  The i8 skidded off the road and into a nearby guard rail.

The rest of the details are unknown to us at this time.

A wrecked BMW i8 is not something we enjoy seeing, but crashes unfortunately seem to be an increasingly common occurrence when it comes to performance vehicles.
